CyberOptics Corporation (Nasdaq: CYBE), a leading SMT inspection solutions provider, announces the sale of its 1000th in-line inspection system to electronics manufacturers in China. With more than 150,000 sensors in the field and greater than 3,000 systems installed globally, the company’s expertise in designing sensors and developing quality inspection solutions is unsurpassed.
“CyberOptics is pleased to announce its 1000th inspection system delivered to the Greater China market during the summer of 2011. Delivering our 1000th in-line inspection system to the China market marks a major accomplishment and a significant milestone for CyberOptics,” said Dennis Rutherford, General Manager for CyberOptics’ Inspection Systems Business. “Our recent growth in the China market has been driven by the sales of the new QX500™ AOI platform - the fastest, high performing AOI system on the market today. We have invested significantly in new products and R&D over the last three years since the relocation of our Systems Business to Singapore. We will continue to further advance our products through various market-driven performance improvement programs planned for both SPI and AOI product lines.”
CyberOptics’ QX500™ AOI system is innovative in every sense with a unique image acquisition solution - Strobed Inspection Module (SIM), designed to deliver high-speed inspection matched with exceptional defect coverage and an extremely low false call rate. Winning its third prestigious award since its launch at NEPCON China 2010 clearly emphasizes the global recognition the QX500™ has gained in terms of technological advancements and superior inspection capability.
The introduction of strobed white lighting in the QX500™ makes it the only AOI system to provide ‘on-the-fly’ area-scanning inspection at an incredible 200 cm²/sec, setting it apart from other conventional AOI systems.
“I also congratulate the entire CyberOptics family including our sales representatives for making this milestone possible. Please expect many more new and exciting products from CyberOptics over the coming months as we continue to invest heavily in R&D. Connectivity of our SPI and AOI solutions via our new Process Monitor SPC package as well as closed-loop interface with the leading printer manufacturers are among the new features our valued customer base can expect,” added Rutherford.
